General Unix Twitter is currently buzzing about the death of Dennis Ritchie, the visionary creator of UNIX and C, among other things. We hope it's just a false rumor. Story developing, we will be updating. Update: Unfortunately, it seems to be confirmed. Rob Pike, co-creator of the Plan 9 and Inferno OSes, who has worked with Ritchie in the past, and he's currently working for Google's GO language, posted this.

Yes I felt sad because of Steve Job's death but I'm feeling lot sad because of Sir Dennis Ritchie's death. I learned 'C' language reading his books. I taught 'C' to many students and earned money and respect.
I definitely owe him. RIP sir.
